Swim suit for the larger lady?

My Mum is tempted to get back into swimming, but is massively put off by not being able to find a swimsuit she feels comfortable in. She is a size 18-20, with a v large bust - so would ideally like something with extra support/moulding. I am thinking of one of those suits with a little skirt maybe. I looked in Bravissimo but they all seemed a bit "young" iykwim? Has anyone found anything similar? TIA.

Lands End are very good

Or she could try here which specialise in larger busts and you can search for swimwear by bra size.
